American Alligator Tooth
'Tropical Reef' Necklace
Found around and raised in the gulf coastal states of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi,Texas and the Carolinas.
Gators have approximately 74 to 80 teeth in their mouth. When a tooth wears down or breaks off, there is another underneath to take it's place. An alligator can cycle through 3000 teeth during it's lifetime.
Alligator tooth amulets have been worn for protection from evil to illness…they are considered a good luck talisman.
This tropical alligator tooth pendant is adorned with teak, ceramic, glass, SP, and pewter fish disk beads.
- 24" in length
- Soft brown 2mm rich grecian leather
- Lobster claw clasp
- The focal point is a 2” tooth from a 10’ American alligator.
- The tooth is cream with a caramel colored tip. The tip color is naturally occurring and is used as a design element.
Like all of Mother nature's gifts, every alligator tooth is different, so each necklace is unique.
